United To Parade Premier League Trophy Through Manchester
24 April 2013, 11:52
Manchester United will parade the Premier League on an open top bus through Manchester on Monday May 13th.
They'll start at Old Trafford in the early evening, before ending in the city centre.
The parade will come the day after Sir Alex Ferguson and his players get their hands on the trophy following their final home game of the season against Swansea.
The parade also comes two days after rivals City play in the FA Cup final against Wigan.
More details of the route and timings will be announced soon.
The move is being welcomed by Manchester City Council, which released the following statement:
"We are happy to confirm that there will be a parade in the early evening of Monday 13 May to mark Manchester United FC's title win, travelling from Old Trafford to Manchester City Centre. Full details will be announced in due course.
"We would also like to clarify that, contrary to the implication in some sections of the media today, Manchester City FC have never discussed or requested having a parade on Monday 13 May, or any other date, should they win the FA Cup and any suggestion about there being competition for that date is entirely unfounded."
